the candidates stand on issues that relate to the latino community in particular. we size up issue by issue how barack obama and mitt romney plan to tackle these key american challenges, but before we get to those, here's a look at top stories making news today. >>> we start with a deadly shooting on an alabama college campus. a campus police officer shot and killed an 18-year-old freshman at the university of south alabama overnight. school officials say gilbert call lar was naked and acting ear rattically. he confronted the officer and rushed him stooimpls and ignored warnings. they say the officer shot the young man in the chest once. his friends say they're shocked at what happened. >> you could ask anyone that knew him. he was a great, loving guy. always made people smile. is not the kind of guy that people knew him and said he would do something like this. >> cnn legal contributor paul cowl lan says alabama law may come into play in this case down the road. >> alabama also has virtually the identical stand your ground law that florida has. so do you know that the officer in this case can
and the way in which latino catholics catholics are more likely to support the democratic candidate -- it will not be as good as from deducter in future election as it has been in the past as a bellwether. one of the things that we've focused on the election season is how the catholics vote is important how it can be seen a bell bellwether or swing vote. in between the different religious groups here. these are from exit polls from recent election. you can see, it's a percentage of the groups that are supporting the democratic party candidate. either for the president or off year election for the member of the house. and you can see on the right there the furthest column to the right those are people with no religious affiliation and those with another religious afghanistan which is neither christian or jewish is heavily supporting democrat in the last decade. you is see protestant they haven't won in the last decade either. i wouldn't expect them to have any chance in the election either among the prod accident. the catholic vote is the one that is swinging back and forth. it's the
the voters who are already obama voters, so people like latino voters who lean obama but might not vote anyway, they're trying to get them energized to go out and vote. union voters. then women who are already leaning to obama. the second point is to get early voters out to the polls because that's where the obama team feels like their machine, their ground game, actually makes a difference. they think they have the numbers. the question is can you get them there on election day, if not, get them out early. that made a big difference in 2008. they're trying to do it again this year. then you mentioned women voters. this is where they think the margin of difference can come in. there are a lot of undecided women voters, they think a margin of them and they trying to turn them at the very end, one way they are going to do it, bill clinton is hitting the trail with the president next week on monday. the first time the two men will stump together, going to three battleground states. we'll see that effort in action next week, anderson. >> jim, gloria, jessica, thanks. let us know what you th
's the first national monument since the 1700s to horne the latino. the latino vote is heavily skewed towards the president, but the issue is enthusiasm. we know this visit today in california with this national monument is a big one for the president. as for governor romney, he took direct aim at president obama's handling of foreign policy during his speech at the military institute in virginia. it's the tenth foreign policy speech of romney's campaign. >> when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability, with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region, and with violent extremists on the march, and with an american ambassador and three others dead likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates, it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east alied with us. i share this hope. hope is not a strategy. >> let me bring in the "news nation" political panel. chris and michael and jonathan and communications r
are not a slave state. we should be able to practice our law as we see fit. >>> and number of latino and african-american community leaders warned earlier this week that the republican party will become marginalized if it continues to ignore issues that are important to minority voters. this happened at the african american civil war museum here in washington. speakers including national council black women president faye williams, author lenny mcallister discuss the vote to suppress through voter i.d. laws popping up around the country. on the eve of the first presidential debate of 2012, our focus will be timely and important, and that is to discuss and highlight the impact of minorities and women on the 2012 presidential and legislative elections. tonight's inaugural event is being held before the first presidential debate between president barack obama and governor mitt romney. tonight's town hall meeting provides us with a unique and strategic opportunity to put our important and crucial minority vote front and center because this is about us, our families, our communities. it's about our f
said the way that we get a voting platform that would transform america is for latinos and blacks and poor white people to get together. i would add women to that. we have a number of women this year that hopefully they will be voting for what they want. we cannot get all of what we want unless we help someone else get what they want, and that leads to our working together, starting to strategize for 2016, when we made want somebody else to be president forced to change those people in the senate. usually, we'd wait until the last minute then come together. we need to get away from that. the dream that act does not hurt me. i want my brothers and sisters to have the dream act, but also to understand, i want as a woman, as an african-american. i want an african-american woman on the supreme court. we will then get to where we want to go. >> you mentioned -- latin decisions and a poll that came up with, which showed that he knows our elderly -- overwhelmingly fund of the president and not fond of the other party. it is not that one party is so great over the other. it really is that
growing demographic, latinos. the one demographic that the president struggles is whites, especially white men. in a "washington post" poll, mitt romney held a 2-to-1 advantage over the president with white men. it's a delicate issue full of nuance unless you're romney surrogate and former governor of new hampshire john sunuunuu. >> we have to wonder if that's an endorsement based on issue or if he has a slightly different reason he prefers president obama. when you have someone in your own race you're proud of being president of the united states i applaud cool inpowell for voting for him. >> eliot: did john sununu say that over the line. that is criticized in a way that's bad or simply making an observation that says, hey racial pride is a legitimate thing so colin powell go ahead and go for it. >> i think he was out of line. having him change his position flip flop just hours after the statement tells you right there that he was out of line and it's offensive to a decorated general of this country. but i think it understand lines a deeper tone in this republican party, and the whole rac

to go until the elections, we're taking an in-depth look this morning at the effect latinos could have on election dame you know that saying there's power in numbers? well, latinos have exactly that. according to the latest census, there are more than 50 million latinos in the u.s., and of those, more than 12.2 million are expected to show up at the polls on election day. that is just over half of latinos who are eligible to vote. joining me now, as they do every week at this time, cnn contributor maria cardona and amy holmes, anchor of "the real ne" on the blaze. good morning to both of you. maria, how critical is the latino vote in swing states like florida, for example? >> it's very critical, randi, and especially in this close election. we saw already the latino vote being decisive. in 2008, president obama would not have been able to turn florida, new mexico, colorado, nevada, would not have been able to turn those blue and win the election had it not been for the latino vote. in 2010, latinos basically saved democrats from losing the senate, and harry reid says this all the time.

this election. guest: 26% of the state is latino. this voting block has been shown to hear a lot about the economy, a lot about education. immigration does not rank as the highest this year of interest to these voters. it is an underlying across the board thing. are you saying the right thing on these topics. it is 2/3 versus 1/3 that the voters are split on this. this is what candidates are fighting about. obama made a promise to address it in his first year in office and did not do that. he said he did not have time and did not have a cooperative congress. that has not stopped republicans who say, we can bring a comprehensive immigration reform, which is a term both parties defined differently. they are trying to make that a sales pitch. if you turn on spanish radio, you hear nonstop commercials from both sides. this is a swing state for the president and it is also a swing state for the senate and one of the congressional races on here as well. host: if we are talking with karoun demirjian from the washington son. you can call in on the republican line. we have a special line set up
that came out, cnn-orc poll. latino voters choice for the president. whopping 70% chose president obama compared with 26 terz for mitt romney. romney here is doing worse than john mccain did back in 2008 who got 31%. the latino vote. also worse than george w. bush in 2004 who got 44% of the latino. anna, to you. is there anything at this point that romney can do to get the latino support up? >> well, suzanne, i think praying on novina might help. look, he -- we had a tough primary on the republican side. i think mitt romney has been an unknown commodity to his hispani hispanics. he doesn't come from a border state like john mccain or george w. bush did. he has not done a great intense voter outreach with the latinos because he ran out of money after the primary. he -- let me just be absolutely truthful and give smu straight talk as john mccain would say. mitt romney dug himself into a hole with latinos during the primary. he said some things that are coming back to haunt him. he now needs to find a way to dig himself out of that hole. i think the only way he will do it is if he really c
, and it's still the case, blacks and latinos are always sort of brought into that cue, but the cue was so big this time in terms of the entrants into the labor market some 873,000 new people -- more people employed, and so that obviously created more jobs for blacks and more for hispanics. >> we know the growth rate is still pretty weak. it's only at 1%. how does the economy actually grow? how does it become more healthy? >> i would expect that next quarter around it will be much greater. it's 1.3% now, but the signal that is we're seeing now, those signals will play out, and the thing that we've been saying for months is that the economy has not been slowed because lack of profitability. in fact, corporations have been experiencing record profits. they have record amounts of cash. we have record low interest rates. so all of the conditions for growth have been there, and so what we're seeing now happening is that they're beginning to materialize. >> finally, there's always the political aspect of all of this, and there's some conservative who's say, look, you know, we think you're fudgin

cain and then candidate george w. bush had thousands of people in front of the philadelphia art museum, latino voters turning out in droves to vote for this republican ticket. fast-forward to today. where are the republicans in locking down that latino vote, and what do you see there? >> tom, they're crucial in three battleground states. nevada, colorado, and florida. there's a large puerto rican population have moved to florida, the i-94 area. right now the president is leading, i thought it was mas print. an astounding 45 points. mitt romney is at 25%, the president is at 70% amongst latinos. john mccain did about 35 or 34. but this is the margin of difference, and many people feel that this emerging population group is key to president obama keeping the presidency. >> thanks a lot, mark. brian, when you look at where these vote totals are, places like florida, places in nevada, that's where the latino vote is going to come in. >> senator john mccain, the nominee in 2008, joins us live from boca raton, florida. sen to great to see you as always. you have the unique perspective of having debated bot
2008. talk about how that is impacting this election. guest: 26% of the state is latino. this voting block has been shown to hear a lot about the economy, a lot about education. immigration does not rank as the highest this year of interest to these voters. it is an underlying across the board thing. are you saying the right thing on these topics. it is 2/3 versus 1/3 that the voters are split on this. this is what candidates are being -- candidates are fighting about. obama made a promise to address it in his first year in office and did not do that. he said he did not have time and did not have a cooperative congress. that has not stopped republicans who say, we can bring a comprehensive immigration reform, which is a term both parties defined differently. they are trying to make that a sales pitch. if you turn on spanish radio, you hear nonstop commercials from both sides. this is a swing state for the president and it is also a swing state for the senate and one of the congressional races on here as well. host: if we are talking with karoun demirjian from the washington son. you
and the republic party have so alienated the fastest growing demographic group in the country the latino community. that was probably the only thing that i thought maybe could have been a gotcha thing. >> bill: now but he said it himself, the paper wasn't pushing him on the latino thing, was the paper? >> no. >> bill: he just said it himself. are there a lot of latino voters in iowa now? does that change the item graphic of the state? >> i will tell you there is probably about 44,000 and i think the population is about 182,000. >> in des moines? >> not in des moines, in iowa. >> 182,000. you have got more people than that. >> in the latino community? yeah, i'm speaking specifically in the latino community. >> bill: all right, so you have 182,000 latinos in the state. and what's the 44,000 you mentioned? >> those are registered to vote. >> bill: okay. now, the state is a dead heat. your radio station very powerful. is your radio station endorsing anybody? >> we have not endorsed anybody just yet. >> bill: do you have a feeling on who is going to take iowa? >> if it was right -- i will will tell you
, an important constituency. "the new york times" reporting that both campaigns looking at latinos as deciders in three swing states. that's colorado, nevada, and florida. however, mitt romney trails the president among latinos at the moment in a recent pew poll. when you look at phrases like self-deportation, the issue of the use of illegals, which is seen by tb latino community as being very insensitive, how does this resonate, then? how does this show that the romney campaign does, indeed, value this constituency? >> well, i'm a latina, from florida, originally, now in virginia. but i have to tell you something, immigration's an important issue and governor romney has made it very clear that he has a long-term plan for immigration policy in this country. where he's going to be working with both parties. but, you know, for the hispanics, it's about the economy. and you look at a recent poll from fiu, basically saying that nearly half of the latinos believe that obama ended up breaking that promise. secondly, more than half of the latinas also believe that obama is basically not -- you know,
and the president's kept in the race because of latino support in colorado as well. >> let's talk a little bit more, jonathan, about women in colorado and nevada, because the president has gone from double-digit leads to single-digit leads there, obviously still leading among women but you have a lot of attention being paid frankly because of things that people like mourdock has said, the war on women, do you think that will turn around? is the president going to expand his lead again? what's going on with the women vote in these key battleground states? >> that's an interesting question because i've been trying to figure that out as well. i mean, the republicans have handed the democrats in general and the president in particular plenty of material to show the contrast and the differences between the president and governor romney when it comes to women's issues and you remember from i believe it was the second debate when the president made the all-important pivot from talking about choice and women's health to economic issues. talking about how, you know, making contraception available to women i
